Chinese Chicken Salad

Posted on: June 25, 2013

I truly doubt the Chinese will sit down to dinner tonight and have this salad but since it has a bit of an oriental dressing, let’s go with this recipe name! It’s a hot and humid day here in London, Canada so this cook is keeping it cool! Lucky for me, I have a man who loves a salad on a hot summer night! Here’s what I’m planning on:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. of honey (can use sugar)
  • 3 tbsp. g.f. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 16 oz of mixed greens or baby spinach
  • 4-8 oz shredded cabbage or kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley for a milder taste
  • 1/4 cup each of shredded beets and carrots
  • 1/4 red pepper julienned
  • 1/2 diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts or slivered almonds
  • 2 chicken breasts shredded

Directions:

  1. To make the dressing, blend the top 5 ingredients well and put aside while assembling the salad.
  2. In a large bowl layer the lettuce, cabbage, cilantro, the shredded veg and the peppers.
  3. Sprinkle the shredded chicken over top of all of this and then sprinkle with the peanuts!
  4. Top with the dressing and give a gentle toss!
  5. Serve with a chunk of baguette or a side of veggies, or both!
  6. A lovely Riesling would go very well with this dish!
  7. Bon Appetit!
